Comments Wanted to use a different operator this trip as local operators visit a limited number of locations since this is their "off season". One local operator was not sure if they would be going out due to weather forecasts so could not guarantee availability. Had an ad from a local magazine about Wreck Life based out of Red Hook on St. Thomas so got in touch via e-mail. Yes they had availability and would gladly go. Asked if I needed to take ferry from/to St John and they said for an additional $20 they would pick me up at the public dock. To my surprise when they showed up I was the only diver and they asked where I wanted to go. Told them the locations I definitely did not want to see again then said "far be it from me to pass up a wreck" to which they replied Ok, General Rogers it is. Great dive clear water and the biggest green moray I have ever seen, shaded of "The Deep" size. Then a shallow dive to Grass Caye where there were lots of fish and nice corals. Next day had the same situation, only diver so I let them choose and we did both site on Dog Island. Dives not as nice but stormy weather was moving in, had nice fresh water rinse on way back.
